Carrasco has been a long-term target for Unai Emery and Arsenal, with the Gunners initially plotting a move in January 2019 before signing Denis Suarez instead.

As per a report from Nicolo Schira of the Gazzetta Dello Sport, Premier League giants Arsenal are closing on a deal for Belgian winger Yannick Carrasco.

The former Atletico Madrid winger has now fuelled speculation he is set for a summer move, revealing he has had an offer from an unnamed club.

"There is now an offer on the table and the negotiations with my agent are progressing well", he said.

The Brazilian starlet certainly looks to be an exciting prospect for the future and Arsenal have beaten off a number of top European clubs for his signature so I'll be pleased to see him become our first major signing of the summer.

In the process, it was also divulged that the game will launch next year on March 6, 2020. You'll also receive any applicable pre-order bonuses.

The Belgian is now plying his trade at Dalian Yifang in China, but enjoyed a successful spell with Atletico Madrid before that, while also representing his country in the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation previous year. Now it's a matter of getting out for the details. He went on to say: 'I am aware that I am an important player for the team but I hope they let me leave.

The 25-year-old Carrasco also stated that he did not regret moving to China and even though he is still happy, he would like to return to his family in Europe as he explained further, "It's not that I don't like football in China".

'From a family point of view, I would rather play in Europe and stay closer to my family'. I don't think we've underestimated life there. It was a handsome experience.

Speaking earlier this year, he told the Sun: "There was interest from Arsenal and I had a lot of teams in January giving me the chance to go back to Europe, but here the president said it was hard to go then".
